Due to the fact that the landfill in this area is approaching its maximum capacity, the local government needs to find out other alternatives to treat the waste.

Therefore, waste reduction through waste bank has been initiated in Kepanjen District.

The output of community participation analysis is the level of community participation. The assessment of participation level is used five indicators of participation rate determined by local government. Afterwards, scenario approach is used. The scenario is made based on the level of participation in Kepanjen District.

Consequently, the scenarios proposed are pessimist scenario, fair scenario, and optimist scenario for low, medium, and high participation respectively. Pessimist scenario focuses on avoiding the community to do open burning causing air pollution and health injury. Meanwhile, the fair scenario starts to introduce the institution to the community to conduct the capacity building of the community in waste separation.
